|Eg0_001 - The Ghost Between The Strings - Ekstatik Trauma (demos 2006-2007) - The Ghost Between The Strings|
The only sound source used by TGBTS is guitar (often prepared and processed by some software treatments) to create dissonant experimental tunes and foggy dark soundscapes. Tracks available here were selected and compiled in end of april 2007, from 5 or 6 hours of ugly lo-fi crap recorded between december2006 and april 2007. They have many flaws in playing and/or recording but TGBTS has decided to make them available as the most representative (and hopefully less annoying) pieces of its new sonic...

|The Ghost Between The Strings - Constant 15 [treetrunk054] - The Ghost Between The Strings|
From "The Ghost Between The Strings": This version of Constant is an improvisation on prepared guitar played with e-bow recorded in July 2008. It has been later digitally processed with reverb and filters, but there are no edits nor overdubs. "Constant" pieces, for those unfamiliar, are musical works based on being as minimal as possible-- finding the least possible thing necessary for listening. These pieces tend to be drone in nature...

|Eg0_006 - The Ghost Between The Strings : Howling Fossils - The Ghost Between The Strings|
"Howling Fossils" is a massive and cavernous drone made of layers of processed guitars, with a hint of rawer guitar noise in the middle. The only sounds used in this track come from 2 guitar improvisations recorded in january 2007 (one of them is available as Howling Fossils (Demixed) on TGBTS 1st mp3 album : Ekstatik Trauma). The final mix (using only audacity and its built-in effects) has been made in summer 2007.

|The Ghost Between The Strings- Tales Of Emptiness [treetrunk055] - The Ghost Between The Strings|
All sounds come from improvisations on prepared guitar, recorded and processed in a very lo-fi way in 2007, and reworked (cleaned, filtered, edited, and reassembled) in 2008 for Treetrunk. Treetrunk is very impressed with the release, and we think you will be, too.

|The Ghost Between The Strings - A Map Of Scars - The Ghost Between The Strings|
The Ghost Between The Strings is a next guitar drone jewel in DNA Production catalogue. Presented earlier as a collaboration member in "Rotation Project", now this French one-person project comes with full-length album "A Map Of Scars", a beautiful and expressive guitar drone work consisting of three long pieces. All the tracks are in different mood, from melancholic to utterly dark, and this fluidity is another thing the work benefits from...

|The Ghost Between The Strings- Constant 24 [treetrunk083] - The Ghost Between The Strings|
This is The Ghost Between The Strings' second contribution to the ongoing "Constant" series. This time, the artist was improvising, and found some music he liked-- this happened rather suddenly-- call it serendipity. We at Treetrunk like this piece very much, and think it fits in nicely with the label and series. "Constant" pieces, for those unfamiliar, are musical works based on being as minimal as possible-- finding the least possible thing necessary for listening...

|The Ghost Between The Strings - Unfinished Decline [wh220] - The Ghost Between The Strings|
The signature sound of tgbts is the use of heavily processed guitar to craft profound droning soundscapes. About the album: A selection of tracks recorded between 2009 and 2011 that were all more or less planned to be completed - but finally stayed in their first, raw state, with various flaws. This is TGBTS' 2nd "posthumous" album. As usual, using only guitars (often prepared, detuned, e-bowed...) and effects...

|[Eg0_050] TGBTS : the tunnel at the end of the light - the ghost between the strings|
The ghost between the strings is now a somehow defunct project, but some unpublished recordings are still waiting to be released. So let's say that "The tunnel at the end of the light" is his 1st "posthumous" album. It's made of a single track based on an e-bowed guitar improvisation recorded in 2009 in a rather lo-fi way, and that was slightly mixed / edited / processed in 2010/2011.

|Eg0_004 - The Ghost Between The Strings - Ghosts Don't Exist, And I'm Not An Exception - The Ghost Between The Strings|
Unlike previous TGBTS' albums that were rather various, this one contains only dark ambient / ambient noise, in a deliberately monotonous and minimalist vein - but still made with only guitar (and bass on last track) sounds. Warning : These are lo-fi recordings, they weren't designed at all for headphones listening.

|Mystified and The Ghost Between The Strings - Ghostly Radiance [treetrunk076] - The Ghost Between The Strings, Mystified|
"Ghostly Radiance" is a split collaboration between The Ghost Between The Strings and mystified. The Ghost Between The Strings proposed the split, and his tracks are guitar-based ambience and dark ambience, full of moodiness and subtlety. Mystified's half tends to be a bit dronier but is also dark and full of shifting moods. Listening to the tracks together makes sense to the artists, and they hope you agree...

|Mister Vapor versus The Ghost Between The Strings- Structures In Transit [treetrunk093] - Mister Vapor and The Ghost Between The Strings|
In 2009, The Ghost Between The Strings approached Mister Vapor with some interesting guitar-based loop structures, proposing that Vapor remix the loops, adding percussion and other light touches. The result is an engaging, often gritty industrial sound that makes a good sequel to "Urbscape". Music for driving in the city at night.
